Lonoy Cold Spring in Bohol is a pretty rad spot to spend an hour or two swimming in the man-made pools which are fed by a nearby freshwater stream.

Lonoy Cold Spring isn’t the most picturesque Bohol tourist spot but still a worthy place to check out while you’re in the area.

I visited Lonoy Cold Spring on the way to Kinahugan Falls, so you can combine these two locations on the same route.

 

Have you got travel insurance for Philippines? I know that nobody likes to talk about this stuff but accidents can happen and having World Nomads Insurance can save you thousands of dollars if something goes wrong. 

 

WHERE IS LONOY COLD SPRINGS

Lonoy Cold Spring is located in Jagna on Bohol island. 

Lonoy Cold Spring is best visited from Anda town in East Bohol which is a 38km drive with a journey time of 55 minutes.

If you are staying in the main tourist area of Panglao, Lonoy Cold Spring is a 77 km drive that takes approximately 1 hour and 50 minutes.

HOW TO GET TO LONOY COLD SPRING

The best way to reach Lonoy Cold Spring Bohol is to rent a scooter in Anda and make the drive south-west to Jagna.

There are limited scooter rental stores located in Anda but I know of one place where you can get your hands on some wheels for around 500 pesos per day. His name is Joey and he can be contacted by phone on +639123982873 or Facebook Bernaldez Joey.

LONOY COLD SPRING ENTRANCE FEE

The entrance fee at Lonoy Cold Spring is 10 pesos.

There are also plastic tables and chairs available for rent for an extra 50 pesos.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT LONOY COLD SPRING BOHOL

When you arrive at Lonoy Cold Spring you’ll find a small parking lot and ticket stand out the front before entering through the gates to the springs.

Lonoy Cold Spring is made up of three separate springs that are fed from runoff of water from the nearby mountains. The flow of water cascades down the hillside into each mad-made pool and meets the freshwater stream at the bottom.

It’s a popular location for the locals to hang out on weekends and you won’t find too many tourists here. They are always very friendly and welcoming to foreigners so take the time to get to know them and learn more about the local way of life here on Bohol.

Snacks and drinks are also available for purchase from the little shop next to the springs.

The water in the Lonoy Cold Spring is no more than six feet deep and it’s a great spot to cool off while listening to the sounds of the surrounding forested area.
